Purity and tragedy within the first few minutes of the film, as well as an ongoing theme throughout. Many films of this era, bring us back to honest values, reminding us what's really important.

Subject: great movie
The older the movie, the better they seem, and this one didn't disappoint me. I could also relate to it, since I was sent to the State Industrial School for Girls when I was the same age as Jimmy. Only I didn't get out for fifteen months! Thank goodness those reforms of the reform schools had already taken place by the time I was fourteen.
I will always love these old movies, and seeing the stars in their earlier roles.

Very enjoyable movie. But the "nigger" reference from the young man in the beginning was like someone taking a pee in my coffee. I knew that racism existed back then, I'm just surprised that it would be displayed in such a blatant way. Now I understand why this is one film from Miss Davis that was not preserved.

This is a good little film. It goes over the top sometimes, but when you have Bette Davis, Pat O'Brien, and Charlie Grapewin in a movie from the1930's you are going to get something worth watching.

Subject: As Good as They Come
'Hell's House' is full of flaws, but redeeming acting, a glimpse of civilisation as it was and could have been still but better today, but was spoiled by Green and Marxist disease (I mean here, the suicidal rebellion which stems from the Devil and leads to self-annihilation because -- dare I say it? -- The Bible really is True and them who have been rejecting it for these 2000 years have largely shaped the fall of Western Civilisation which they have largely brought about through background control of the media of information and education, its psychology, with a determination which can only be described as obsessive.

The redemption of 'Hell's House' is the several long & short moments of superb, heart in hand, acting which lifts an otherwise 'B' Movie out into the First Class territory. Although no where near what it might have been were more confidence, more finance, and more scripting might have made it, the film is touching by the innocence of those who act in the several stellar moments of pathos, scattered throughout the movie. What Bette Davis might have developed into says less about her and more about what commercial cinematography wanted -- and got.

The cinematographic photography is adequate, but no more -- it illuminates, but it does not contribute anything in itself, as if filmed by news reel cameramen, and they without imagination nor imaginative technique.

What Society America might have developed in contribution to Western, and World, Civilisation we might never know this side of Eternity; the Second World War and subsequent 'economic well-being by unlimited growth' economics designed in hell, these have seen to that.

So, taking what has been given us, as paltry fare as it may be, this 'Hell's House' is as good as they come.

Subject: priceless
This film is priceless! It has everything. The writing is better than expected. The acting, with folks like Bette Davis (so young and she knew how to use those eyes) and Pat O'Brien (thin and handsome) you just can't have a bad movie. I give it five stars and I am sure I will watch it many times over the years.

I found it amusing when reading the opening credits that two of the actors were named "Junior".

Bette Davis, Pat O'Brian, what's not to like?
